A brief history of knives
The first knives were invented by Homo sapiens during prehistoric times and were used as weapons, tools and eating utensils. As of 2014, the oldest known knife-like tool is the Oldowon which was used up to 2.5 million years ago. Most likely our “hominid” cousins developed these tools from their need for survival.
Today the knife is said to be the most important tool in the kitchen. Chef knives are used for cutting, chopping, dicing, slicing, mincing, peeling, separating, and other kitchen tasks where the thin metal shaft of a blade is of value for food preparation.
According to my research, “the first knives used were created by simply fracturing rock – a new fracture being sharper than the original weather-worn edge. Any broken rock can be used as a knife but some rocks were favored over others.
There are more than a dozen different kinds of kitchen knives, some versatile, others dedicated for one specific use. The 11 most popular knives for daily cooking and food serving jobs make up the core of all professional as well as home cook knife sets.
The biggest knives are called cleavers (also called butcher knives). They have a flat, rectangular-shaped blade and come in a variety of sizes, depending on their intended use. They are one of the broadest, heaviest knives, and sometimes feature a hole near the spine of the blade so they can be hung up when not in use.
Other common knives used in kitchens are: Chef’s Knife, Boning knife, Bread Knife, Paring Knife, Carving Knife, Utility Knife and Steak Knife.
